Citizens Give Washington Representatives Notice: Possible Criminal Indictment

Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, citizens across the country, in several cities, were showing up at local offices of elected federal representatives to put them on notice of possible indictment (via the AmericaAgain! Indictment Engine) if they don’t follow the law. It’s called the “Good Guys Campaign.”

Years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. rallied for the civil rights of people regardless of their skin color. Now, on the day set aside to remember him, Americans in several cities across the fruited plain push to break the shackles the federal government has unlawfully sought to place on them ever since the War to Enslave the States.

AmericaAgain! was previously in the news seeking a chief counsel to lead indictments against corrupt politicians in Washington. Now, the organization and its members are teaming together to put representatives on notice that they will be held accountable, not only at the ballot box, but also before the judge’s bench.

According to AmericaAgain! founder David Zuniga, this particular event will be to bring about total surprise, audacious cheer and optimism.

Zuniga told Freedom Outpost, “Beginning January 19, We The People turn a page in history, taking up our duty of popular sovereignty over our federal servants and exhibiting our total contempt for mainstream media.”….

A formal notice of intent to repossess will be left with each representative which reads:

We The People of the sovereign and united States of America, the ultimate sovereigns of the elected tenant of this office (‘Tenant’), which Tenant is bound by law to serve and obey, hereby give formal notice to Tenant that we intend to repossess the Constitution for the United States of America.

1.We intend to hold Tenant, our sworn public servant, to the letter of the Constitution.
2.We will offer to Tenant opportunity to cease aiding and abetting organized crime benefitting industry under the guise of performing legislative duties, by Tenant formally agreeing to join the AmericaAgain! Good Guys roster.
3.We will offer Tenant immunity from criminal prosecution by formally agreeing to support, co-sponsor, and/or vote for the 20 AmericaAgain! reform laws drafted and sponsored by We The People.
4.Should Tenant refuse to cooperate, instead continuing to aid and abet violations of the U.S. Constitution in collusion with industry and with corrupt executive and judicial branch servants — We The People intend to pursue multi-count felony indictment in the courts of this Sovereign State against defendant Tenant, via the AmericaAgain!

….“We The People are taking our lives back, our liberty back, our property back from DC organized crime,” Zuniga said. “We intend to expose ALL of them…on both sides of the aisle…in the White House and in the corrupt SCOTUS…in the deep-captured regulatory agencies…and stupid fake elections and false political crises — even trumped-up war — will not deter us.”

“We The People can now show the world how Americans can defeat government corruption and restore rule of law with a mechanism that is practical, peaceful, and perpetual: law enforcement, at the highest level,” he added.

Zuniga continues, “As the Constitution’s sovereigns, only the People themselves can do this….

Pastor boasts “I crumpled the kid” with punch

Pastor Eric Dammann speaks in one sermon of a boy named Ben who was “a nice kid, but one of those — he was a real smart aleck. He was a bright kid, which didn’t help things — made him more dangerous.”

When Ben became too much of a “smart aleck” and asked too many questions about God, Dammann says he got violent with him.

“I punched him in the chest as hard as I — I crumpled the kid,” Dammann says, demonstrating his punch. “I leaned over and I said, ‘Ben, when are you going to stop playing games with God?’”

On Reddit Sunday, commenters responded with disgust to Dammann’s sermon.

“That will probably be a moment that this kid looks at as a turning point once he’s an atheist and looking back at his time in the church,” one commenter wrote, echoing many others who said the pastor’s version of Christianity seemed weak and based on fear.

“[H]e was definitely trying to brag about that,” another commenter wrote. “The way he mimics the punch, and the BAM! he emits. Trying to make sure the audience knows he’s a ‘big man’ […] Reminded me of some white trash bully at a school telling a bullying story to his friends.”

Some commenters questioned whether “Ben” was a real person or whether Dammann could have made the whole story up, while others made the case that if Ben is real, his parents should press criminal charges against Dammann.

Former Governor of Virginia Sentenced for Corruption‏

Bob McDonnell, the former governor of Virginia who was convicted in September on corruption charges, was sentenced to 24 months in prison on Tuesday in one of the most spectacular falls of a statewide elected official in the history of the commonwealth.
Mr. McDonnell, 60, was given the sentence by Judge James R. Spencer of Federal District Court. He was found guilty of trading favors in return for $177,000 in loans, vacations and gifts from a wealthy family friend who was trying to promote his vitamin supplement business.
Mr. McDonnell, a Republican who was once considered a possible contender for the White House, initially faced the prospect of up to 20 years in prison, but The A.P. reported that Judge Spencer lowered that range to six-and-a-half to eight years during the hearing. His lawyers, citing what they described as years of good work and commitment to public service, had argued that a sentence of community service should suffice.

Cracking Down on Corporate Crime

2014 ends with little media attention or criminal prosecutions about corporate violations of laws already on the books. When the ranks of anti-business liberals and radical environmentalists compile their list of the worst offenders, their types of abuses exemplify that the most egregious and reprehensible of company practices do not hit their radar screen. The Global Exchange contends that the top 10 Corporate wrongdoers must behave badly accordingly to a well defined pattern.

1. Alpha Natural Resources for pollution of rivers, streams, and groundwater; violation of the Clean Water Act ; destruction of forest and wildlife habitats; and devastation of Appalachian communities.
2. Bayer for manufacturing and using bee-killing pesticides, pinning the bee crisis on other causes, exposing farmers to harmful pesticides, and working to monopolize drug prices.
3. Carnival Corporation for dumping sewage pollution into oceans, use of cheap, air-polluting fuels, tax evasion, and unfair labor wages.
4. FIFA for forced evictions from homes and stores, damaging local business, tax evasion, labor abuse, corruption, and violating human rights including: right to adequate housing, right to free movement, right to work, right to protest, and right to labor protection.
5. Gap Inc. for refusal to sign “Accord of Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh,” refusal to compensate victims’ families, workers’ rights violations, and unsafe building conditions.
6. Ghirardelli Chocolate Company for refusal to use Fair Trade labor and continuing to support child labor, using labor that violates human rights standards, and creating environmental destruction and poverty.
7. Glencore Xstrata for dumping of toxic tailings, tax evasion, police brutality, destruction of communities, human rights violations, and environmental degradation.
8. HSBC for money laundering, financing conflict palm oil producers, and destruction of land.
9. Koch Industries thwarting public policy; forcing policies on funded politicians, judges, and organizations; working to destroy minimum wage, unions, and social security; re-segregation of public schools; toxic pollution.
10. PepsiCo for deforestation, destruction of peatlands, species extinction, greenhouse gas emissions, commodification of water, use of GMOs and prevention of labeling GMO foods, and privatization of public services.

The juvenile and pathetically simpleminded view of corporate predominance misses the truly ruthless and quasi legal systematic underpinning that operates the establishment criminal syndicates.

As long as collectivist crusaders view the business world in strictly environmental and redistribution terms, there is virtually no chance for any meaningful restraints on an organizational model that routinely evades substantive consequences.

The fundamental criminal nature of the corporate organization model itself is seldom considered as the primary reason why the international corporatist system dominates economic, political and legal institutions.

Ignoring this analytic inquiry, the legal profession would have you accept that corporate crimes are, as FindLaw outlines, mostly issues of Fraud, Embezzlement, Tax Evasion and Money Laundering. Accordingly, such thinking would easily accept that the courts can be the legal arbitrator for adjudicating offenses and hold criminals accountable.

Cristina de Maglie, in a law review paper, Models of Corporate Criminal Liability in Comparative Law, elaborates on this mindset.

“The U.S. has adopted the most modern system of sanctions to counteract corporate crime. The U.S. Sentencing Guidelines possess a complex structure that represents the convergence of two modern tendencies: the exponential growth of corporate crimes and the refinement of sentencing mechanisms. Legal theorists insist that organizational sentencing guidelines rely upon a philosophy of economic deterrence, because they offer corporations strong incentives to prevent and detect offenses. The U.S. Sentencing Guidelines reflect an approach with retributive, preventive, and deterrent elements. This reflects an innovative philosophy in the control of corporate crime, the core of which is found in an effective compliance and ethics program.”

Folks, relying on governmental agents to administer and punish wrongdoers and avoiding the basic cause of the problem, namely; the organizational structure that perpetuates a non competitive economy of corporate monopolies, can only be called mental insanity.

Even the academic argument in the book, Changing Old Antitrust Thinking for a New Gilded Age, misses the structural dilemma. “The century-old antitrust laws do not seem up to the task. Perhaps it is time to create laws for a new Gilded Age and provide regulators the power to determine if megadeals are truly good for America.”

Control of commercialism by the 1% of the 1% will not reverse by updating anti-trust laws, when the will to enforce existing laws is effectively non-existent.

The Center for Corporate Policy assembled this recommendation list for Cracking Down on Corporate Crime, as potential options.

1) Strengthen Criminal Liability Standards For Corporations,
Executives and Directors

2) Strengthen The Sanctions for Corporate Crime

3) Ban Corporate Crooks from Federal Contracts

4) Make Certain Types of Corporate Harm a Federal Crime

5) Strengthen the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act

6) Ban Tax Deductions for Fines and Penalties for Corporate
Misbehavior

7) Make corporate crime a law enforcement priority

8) Tighten Discretionary Standards for the Prosecution of Corporate
Criminals

9) Empower Citizens to Enforce the Law

10) Take away homestead (“keep the mansion”) loopholes for corporate
crooks

11) Empower Investors, Consumers and Ratepayers

Addressing the distinction between “earning a living” from the methods of “making money” is a core element in the search for a sound economic basis for commerce. Since human nature has not changed for the better under the Corporatocracy of an executive immorality culture, expecting that minor changes around the edges will provide the formula for nirvana is ludicrous.

With the financial collapse of Middle America, the economic prospects are bleak for future generations. Relying on corporations for employment is unstable at best. Over the next year a continued theme for this series will be the hard choices that confront consumers. Learning the techniques of accumulating wealth, when the corporate consortiums own the access to capital is more important now than ever.

There is no level playing field in business. Corporations are defined as “A legal entity that is separate and distinct from its owners.” Yet the political/judicial establishment has bestowed person rights to an artificial entity. This tragedy allows for the routine criminal theft of humanity. It is time to focus on the actual problem.
